Woods deal leaves Bills with just one unsigned draft pick

By Mark Gaughan

The Buffalo Bills announced the signing of second-round draft pick Robert Woods, leaving quarterback EJ Manuel as the only unsigned draft pick for the team.

Woods was the first of Buffalo's two second-round picks, taken at No. 41 overall. His four-year deal is believed to be worth about $4.8 million.

Linebacker Kiko Alonso was the Bills' second second-round draft pick, taken at No. 46 overall. Manuel was the 16th overall selection.

Woods started all 38 of his games for the University of Southern California, and he's penciled in as an immediate starter for the Bills.

Woods set USC record for catches with 252 and had 2,930 receiving yards, the sixth-most in school school history. He also had 32 touchdowns and 10 100-yard receiving games.
